The Seoul Central District Court ruled in favor of JYP Entertainment, Rain’s management agency, in a lawsuit against the local drama production firm identified only by the initial “D,” the officials said.

The production company was ordered to pay 360 million won ($336,542) that it owed Rain for his work on “Fugitive: Plan B,” which aired on a KBS channel last year, according to the court.

The agency filed the suit in April, alleging that the star had yet to receive part of his appearance fee as well as promised returns from the drama’s success.
